Farrah Abraham Sparks Backlash for Receiving COVID-19 Vaccine

Farrah Abraham is receiving heat after posting a video of herself getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

Earlier this week, the former “Teen Mom OG” star shared the clip on her Instagram, suggesting that she got the shot because she is among those with "compromised immune systems."

In the video, the MTV personality, wearing a cleavage-baring tank top, gets injected with the vaccine.

“G.I Joe - Mom reporting for duty #covidvacccinecomplete,” she wrote in the caption. “woman who have compromised immune systems prioritize your #covid19 vaccine.”

However, after the clip went viral, many questioned how the 29-year-old was able to get the vaccine, even considering her assertion that she has a compromised immune system.

“How were you able to get [it] so soon????” wrote blogger Perez Hilton.

“Sorry, but you’re not qualified to get the vaccine yet so I’m pretty sure that’s the flu shot @ CVS!” a skeptical Instagram user wrote.

“Damn I’m over here with cancer, ankylosing spondylitis autoimmune disorder on infusions, paralyzed diaphragm and no spleen and can’t get that damn shot! I’m gonna keep trying,” a commenter claimed.

“I’m a teacher and JUST got called to get my first shot this Thursday, how and why does she get the vaccine before me???” another added.

According to NPR on Wednesday morning, more than 78 million doses of the vaccine have been administered in America, reflecting 15.6% of the total U.S. population.

On Tuesday, President Biden said the country was “on track” to have enough supply of coronavirus vaccines “for every adult in America by the end of May.”
